Ghana Tops Gay List In Africa

A statement on by a contributor, Andy S, stated that though Ghana was not an African gay paradise, there may be many desperate young men who were looking for greener pastures.

‚Dating sites are the most frequently used ways to meet a (potential) lover or gay guide in a foreign country. At sites like Outpersonals or Gaydar, you will find that Ghana is the country in Africa with the most registered hopefuls.‘

‚No other country in Africa has so many boys and men looking for a partner on Outpersonals with picture (often naked) than Ghana. Does this mean Ghana is the Gay paradise in Africa? No…! It may mean that there are plenty young men desperate enough to seek greener pastures elsewhere and who are developed enough to have access to the internet and a digital camera,‘ Andy added.

, a homosexual online site, provides information about Ghanaian homosexuals to expatriates who seek black partners for fun, as well as serious relationships. Just like a tour guide, the website gives detailed information on the homosexual landscape in Ghana.

Right from the ‚illegal‘ nature of the act in the country to the various scams that some ‚hopefuls‘ engage in to make quick money, the site presents expatriates all there is to know about the Ghanaian homosexual community.

‚Our welcome must, however, come with a word of caution. South Africa is the only African country to recognise same-sex relationships and is the only nation on the continent where engaging in homosexual activity is not a crime. Therefore, in Ghana as in all other African countries, be very, very careful,‘ the site’s welcome statement said.

Other cautions intimated: ‚many of the men and boys you see on these sites are not even gay or bisexual. Some just pretend to be gay and will have sex for money. Others are just „online gay“, that is, they will tell you hot sexy stories after which they will ask for your financial support (need a phone to call you, mother being sick, brother dead etc.). Once you arrive, they will vanish in thin air. The name and address they give are fake. Often the pictures are fake too. They copied it somewhere from the net.‘

‚But that is not even the worst form: The next category are the ones who will meet you and maybe even have sex with you – an act which will be interrupted by a „policeman“ knocking on your hotel room door. Blackmail is for some a quicker way to get the cash they’re after. Often the policeman is a fraud but sometimes even the police is actually involved.

Corrupt policemen are just part of the extortion plot. If you don’t cough up the money, you will land in prison, plus the embarrassment of the story in the newspapers. After all, gay sex is considered illegal in Ghana under the „unnatural carnal knowledge“ phrase‘.

The site also has a detailed eighteen (18) point list of likely gay hangouts with particular days when gays socialise. Among such hangouts are Rhapsody’s at Accra Mall, Chester’s in Osu, Coconut Groove on ring road, Le Reeve in circle and University of Ghana, Legon.

The site also highlights certain locations in Accra which are tagged ’no-go zones‘ for expatriates due to the ‚very dangerous‘ nature of such areas. One of such ‚very dangerous‘ areas in Accra is Christian village located in Achimota.

‚Especially watch out for Christian Village (Achimota): this has really become a no-go zone. Very dangerous. Also see the fakers2go website on this‘ it warned.

With public debates on gay rights still raging on, activities of gay tourist sites adds to the woes of the country on its actual stance on homosexuality.

With blackmail list, gay men in Ghana fight conmen posing as lovers

ACCRA (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – As Benson walked across the street towards his date in Ghana’s capital, Accra, he saw something was wrong – it was not the man he had been messaging on the popular gay dating app Grindr.

Sensing danger, Benson tried to get away but two other men grabbed him from behind, started beating him and ordered him to hand over his bag and mobile phone. When they threatened him with a knife, he also gave them the passcode to his phone.

“I gave them everything because life is more important,” the 27-year-old, who declined to give his full name, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

“After beating me up and pushing me in the gutter, they left … I went home with a broken jaw.”

Benson’s ordeal is increasingly common in countries where homosexuality is illegal. While the internet has made it easier for LGBT+ communities to find and build relationships online, it has also exposed them to new risks.

In Egypt, Morocco and Nigeria, gay men are often blackmailed and outed by fake dates who trick them into sharing intimate photos which they post online. The police also use social media to lure them to false meetings and make arrests.

Ghana is one of more than 30 African countries that outlaw same-sex relations, according to the LGBT+ rights group ILGA.

While prosecutions are rare, homophobia is widespread and those who are outed often have their lives upended as they are ostracized by friends and family and can lose their jobs.

Alex Kofi Donkor, head of local activist group LGBT+ Rights Ghana, decided to fight back last year on Twitter and Facebook with the Ghana Gay Blackmail List, which exposes “notorious persons who steal, abuse & blackmail gay men”.

The group, which has 1,800 followers, has named and shamed about two dozen men by publishing their photos along with the apps they use, the places they frequent and a warning: “Share widely, be alert and don’t be the next victim”.

“We are in a country where our lives are clearly in danger as a result of people’s hatred and their disgust towards the community,” Donkor said.

“A lot of times, we are unable to achieve justice for the crimes that have been committed so the best we can also do is to protect ourselves.”

Gay Life in Ghana–In Danger and In the Closet

Intro: Three stories from Ghana reveal the repression and fear that gay people live with in their personal lives, on the streets, and accessing health care. There seems no room for discussion or tolerance in this homophobic Christian and Islamic culture.

Ghana Gay Blackmail List receives three or four reports of robbery and blackmail each week

ACCRA, June 9 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – As Benson walked across the street towards his date in Ghana’s capital, Accra, he saw something was wrong – it was not the man he had been messaging on the popular gay dating app Grindr.

Sensing danger, Benson tried to get away but two other men grabbed him from behind, started beating him and ordered him to hand over his bag and mobile phone. When they threatened him with a knife, he also gave them the passcode to his phone.

„I gave them everything because life is more important,“ the 27-year-old, who declined to give his full name, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

„After beating me up and pushing me in the gutter, they left … I went home with a broken jaw.“

Benson’s ordeal is increasingly common in countries where homosexuality is illegal. While the internet has made it easier for LGBT+ communities to find and build relationships online, it has also exposed them to new risks.

In Egypt, Morocco and Nigeria, gay men are often blackmailed and outed by fake dates who trick them into sharing intimate photos which they post online. The police also use social media to lure them to false meetings and make arrests.

Ghana is one of more than 30 African countries that outlaw same-sex relations, according to the LGBT+ rights group ILGA.

While prosecutions are rare, homophobia is widespread and those who are outed often have their lives upended as they are ostracised by friends and family and can lose their jobs.

Alex Kofi Donkor, head of local activist group LGBT+ Rights Ghana, decided to fight back last year on Twitter and Facebook with the Ghana Gay Blackmail List, which exposes „notorious persons who steal, abuse & blackmail gay men“.

The group, which has 1,800 followers, has named and shamed about two dozen men by publishing their photos along with the apps they use, the places they frequent and a warning: „Share widely, be alert and don’t be the next victim“.

„We are in a country where our lives are clearly in danger as a result of people’s hatred and their disgust towards the community,“ Donkor said.

„A lot of times, we are unable to achieve justice for the crimes that have been committed so the best we can also do is to protect ourselves.“

A link on the Ghana Gay Blackmail List page allows members of the public to report cases, which are investigated within closed gay and bisexual social media groups for additional crowdsourced testimonies before publication, Donkor said.

„Once we have posted, there are retweets and so a lot of people are warned as a result and if they are chatting with them, they (stop talking to) them,“ said Donkor, who gets three or four reports of robbery, blackmail and abuse each week.

Nana Kwame, a bisexual man, was robbed and threatened with blackmail after meeting up with a man he’d been messaging on Grindr in a house in Accra.

His date went to use the bathroom and returned with two other men who asked Nana Kwame what he was doing there.

„Before I could answer, I was hit in the face,“ said the 24-year-old who declined to give his full name.

One man rushed to lock the door of the room and then they forced Nana Kwame to unlock his phone and erased all of its contents.

„One of the guys brought the Bible and made me swear that if I leave the place I will change,“ Nana Kwame said. „I was outnumbered, it was three against one, so I had to submit.“

One of the men said he knew Nana Kwame’s brother and threatened to out him to his family unless he phoned someone to send 500 cedi ($88) to his mobile wallet.

Nana Kwame stayed silent. They gave up and let him go.

As men who have sex with men can face up to three years in jail in Ghana, they are usually too scared to report these robberies to the police as this could lead to them being outed, which carries a far greater personal cost, said Donkor.

„One of the quick actions families take is to sack the person from the home. Once you are outed, that also means that your source of livelihood is also threatened,“ he said.

Donkor encourages gay men who have been robbed and blackmailed to report the incidents to the police, telling them „meeting a new friend is not a crime“. But only about 30% are willing to take that first step, he said.

Benson and Nana Kwame said they reported their cases to the police but no arrests were made.

„There is a level of impunity when it comes to the abuse of LGBT+ persons,“ said Donkor.

„You sense that kind of laid back attitude from the police … there is a certain level of homophobia.“

Ghana Police Service said that any cases of police misconduct should be reported to more senior officers.

„Persons who have cases to report to the police should not be worried about their sexual orientation,“ a spokeswoman said.

Unable to rely on the police to keep them safe, LGBT+ communities in many countries are searching for their own solutions.

LGBT+ Nigerians also have a blackmail list, called #KitoAlert, although the system’s administrator has complained online that it is ineffective because people do not use it before meeting strangers.

Grindr, which is used by more than 4 million people a day globally, has introduced numerous safety measures to protect users, including unsending messages, blocking screenshots and disguising the app’s icon on their phones.

Donkor believes more can be done. He would like gay dating apps to provide legal support to men who fall victim to criminals when using their apps.

„There should be a mechanism in place to support local organisations to challenge some of the abuses that happen as a result of using the app,“ he said.

„It will serve as a warning to others who (plan) to use the app to abuse and blackmail users.“

Benson has found a foolproof solution – he no longer uses dating apps.

„There are a lot of fraudsters on Grindr,“ he said. „Anything can just happen to you.“

Overview of Romance Scams in Ghana

When you walk into any internet Cafe in Ghana, you will likely find it full of teenage boys or young men in front of each screen, logged into various dating sites under multiple fake profiles. These teenagers, also referred to as ‘browsers’ or ‘cafe boys’ in Ghana, are not interested in finding love at all.

What they are looking for is middle-aged and elderly men andwomen from the US, Canada, and Australia that they can trick into sending themmoney.

Scamming has become quite popular amongst Ghanaian youthespecially since the unemployment rate in the country is ever high To make endsmeet, young Ghanaian men and women are turning to the internet to findpotential victims to scam.

According to the FBI, the scamming business has really grownin West Africa and the scammers are raking in millions of dollars every yearfrom scams alone.

A Word From The Editor

Back in 2015, I was scammed by an online “dater” for over $35,000 and I was heartbroken and almost broke. I created this dating watchdog site to help others like me avoid this disaster before it is too late.

Altogether we have helped over 50,000 users avoid being scammed online.

I found out I was dating a scammer by using a background searching service. If you are dating someone online, you should run a check.

What are the top one night stand apps? Let’s find out…

Accra Gay Personals

Thanks a lot for all guys here who put comments, this make the website more hepful for foreigners. Abviously this is a great website. I pass through many proxy then get your kindly people here, I am so happy. Maybe even now I am watching by the police online who working for the China goverment.

But I dont care, cos I am running to Ghana now, I am going to work here, and stay long time.

I cant stop myself cos I like black so much, I dont have enough money to make them come to china, so I come to Ghana, but I wont take risk, I will try my best to find the real lover by patient. At the same time, I need help from everybody here, hope to be friend of you guys, I know most of you dont like Chinese, but trust me I am different.

So at the end hope everybody find his real black knight. Educated, middle class people, male and female, come to Africa and gravitate towards the uneducated and jobless. In a culture where class social status is clearly defined, they cross the line then wonder at the resulting confusion. What type of relationship can you get from someone who only completed primary school?

And primary school in Ghana is a lower level than in the West! Think about the implications of what this person said. In Ghana, the most available people are the opportunists. You will meet them easily. They survive by feeding off others. The good people are far too busy to be chasing foreigners. But you can meet these people if you go to the expensive restaurants and clubs. Instead, foreigners seem to want to party in Christian Village. Is their independence threatening? There are plenty good guys here who are genuinely gay and are looking for real relationships.

But, in Ghana, things take time to cultivate. You are unlikely to meet them as a tourist. If you did meet them how would you recognise them? Just look at the low-life on this website. Are these the sort of people you would date in your own country and show to your mother and business associates?

I would have said yes there are good gay guys in ghana but after my experience i dont know anymore.

A peek into the Ghanaian closet

Cam is a South african who travels to Ghana on business and had this to say about gay life there. “I had visited Ghana six times (in the last five years), on business and pleasure, and had never really explored gay life in that country, because of my demanding business schedule. I had, however, communicated by e-mail with a young gay Ghanaian man over the last year. On my visit to Ghana in June 2003, I finally met with my “new” young gay Ghanaian friend, who then introduced me to the “not so closeted” gay Ghanaian life.”

So what is gay life like in Ghana? “There are no gay clubs in Ghana, as there are in South Africa. Gay life is mostly private and most gay people meet at house parties organised by friends all around the country.” Can told BTM.

“In the capital city, Accra, there are basically two nightspots, namely, Strawberry’s in Adabraka and Chesters in Nyaniba Estates, both situated fairly near the city centre. They are both straight clubs but are frequented by both gays and heterosexuals. Both nightspots are only really lively after 10pm on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights.

Most of the gays that frequent these night spots are not restrained either in dress or behaviour and definitely seem to be out of the closet, at least whilst they are at these venues.”

But Cam has a warning for tourists visiting these venues. “Gay tourists to Ghana should beware of heterosexual young men posing as gay men. They frequent these and various nightspots offering their “services” to the unsuspecting tourist and then end up blackmailing the tourist, taking advantage of the illegal status of the being gay in Ghana.”

On the topic of lesbian relationships, Cam was told that they are more acceptable to the heterosexual community than are gay relationships between two men, but no reason was given for this.

For men however there are more details about the kind of pressure put upon them. “There is the usual pressure from parents on young men in their late 20’s to settle down, marry (the opposite sex) and to father children.” Cam told BTM.

“One of the young gay men, 27 years of age, that I became good friends with, has been married for a just over a month, and is ready to “father” his first child. His mother, brother and sisters, and wife know that he is gay.

His wife is most understanding, and actually lives apart from him. He is quite relaxed with the whole arrangement, and has fully accepted that he is gay and not a heterosexual who is confused sexually or a bi-sexual! My other good young gay friend is basically in the same boat. He, however, is only 22 years of age and told me that even though his mother knows that he is gay, he will probably be pressurised in about five years time to marry and father a child. His mother has told him that she will raise the child as her own. He is also at peace with his sexuality and accepts himself as a gay young man. Both these young men are however “crying out” for a loving gay relationship.”

So what options are there for young gay and lesbian Ghanaians who wish to organise? “Quite a few gay Ghanaians are talking about forming Lesbian and Gay Associations and have admired and held South African Gay activists in high esteem over many years. Hopefully the gays in Ghana will emulate their South African sisters and brothers and “break open their closet doors” for good within the next few years.”

Demonstration Against Gays’ and Lesbians’ Alleged Growing Activity

Over a thousand protesters in Ghana have staged a massive demonstration amidst a heavy downpour in the oil city, Sekondi -Takoradi in the Western region to express their opposition to the growing activities of gay and lesbians in that part of West African country.

The protesters defied to engineer their displeasure as they went through the principal streets of the metropolis wielding placards following an alleged report that close to 60 gays and lesbians from the Eastern, Ashanti and Central regions of that country, have attended a get-together held in Tanokrom and other suburbs of the city.

The Muslim community in Takoradi with support from other religious groups and concerned citizens took to the streets of the Twin city.

The Leader of the demonstrators, Saeed Hamid, told AfricaNews that the demonstration was meant to draw government’s attention to the conduct of the gays and lesbians in the country, particularly in the Western Region.

According to the anti-gay and Lesbians group, even though people had the right to choose various sexual orientations and associate with whatever group they desire, the constitution also frowns on the activities of gays and lesbians.

Hamid said Ghana as a country is mainly occupied by Christians and Muslims, and the practice should not be embraced, saying it could have dire consequences on the country.

“Ghana will suffer more than the experience of Sodom and Gomorrah, should we embrace this practice in this country”.

In a petition presented to the Western Regional Minister Paul Evans Aidoo, the protesters said, the rate at which the youth in the Twin City are putting up the practice is alarming and is much of a concern since most of the young boys involved have health problems and wear pampers.

“How would you feel, if someone puts his penis into your anus?” He queried.

Adding that, the act could jeopardize their future.

Hamid mentioned that a lot of expatriates in Tarkwa and Takoradi working in the mining and oil industry were the ones luring the innocent youth into the practice through the influence of money.

They are therefore calling on the government to clearly state what the law says about homosexuality and possibly criminalize the practice. He was however worried that Takoradi is gradually becoming a hub for gays and lesbians hence their decision to resist the ‘’ungodly act’’.

Receiving the petition on behalf of the President, the Western Regional Minister Paul Evans Aidoo assured the demonstrators that steps would be taken to address their concerns.

The Minster advised the group not to take the law into their own hands by attacking the alleged gays and lesbians in their communities since that would be a breach of the law.

The group has given indications that it would organize a nationwide protest if no positive response is heard from the government after two months.

The Western Regional Police Commander DCOP Mahama Hamidu, who led his team to offer protection to the demonstrators, described the march as peaceful.

Recent Demonstration Threatens HIV Education and Health Care

A recent march by over a thousand Ghanian Muslims against “the growing activities of gays and lesbians” in this West-African country, could hamper initiatives that target Men having sex with Men (MSM), such as HIV and Aids interventions, activists have warned.

Mac-Darling Cobbinahof the Centre for Popular Education and Human Rights Ghana, an organisation that also caters for the MSM community said, following a march that went through principal streets of the Metropolis against homosexuality, after an alleged report that close to 60 gays and lesbians from eastern, Ashanti and Central regions of that country were attending a get-together held in Tanokrom.

Mac-Darling said this march has raised fears among the MSM community and this could make it hard to reach them since they would not want to be visible.

“Already they are becoming uninterested to access services because they fear what might happen to them”, he said.

He pointed out that the growing visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community in many parts of Ghana and the sudden “deep interest” by the media to “dig” for lesbian and gay issues could have sparked the anti-gay march.

“Gay people are more visible in their communities and in clubs now more than before”, he added.

Reports state that the march was organised by rally leader, Saeed Hamid, who told fellow protestors that “Ghana will suffer more than the experience of Sodom and Gomorrah, should we embrace this practice in this country.”

The Ghanaian constitution affirms and protects all human rights for Ghanian citizens and this contradicts the Criminal Code 1960 – Chapter 6, Sexual Offences Article 105, which criminalises homosexual behavior amongst gay men. There is no law in Ghana that prohibits homosexual acts between women.

In 2006 the Ghanaian government banned an LGBTI conference, scheduled to take place at the Accra International Conference Centre.

Information Minister, Kwamena Bertels said such a gathering could not be permitted because unnatural carnal knowledge is illegal under the Ghanian criminal code.

“Homosexuality, lesbianism and bestiality are therefore offences under the laws of Ghana”, Bertels said.

Why Women From Ghana Want to Date a Guy Like YOU!

Right now men in Ghana are facing a serious problem – women are less likely to want to get married to them than at any other time in recent history.

The reasons for this are their expectations have changed, and they simply want more from life. And the things they want from life simply don’t exist in their home country, and that includes guys who are ambitious, dress well and aren’t going to cheat on them.

Being a white guy here is a huge advantage on the dating scene. That should confuse the soy boys in Western countries no end. The reasons why they like white guys so much are their own, but it’s something that plays in your favor.

One thing to watch out for is the perception that you’re rich because you’re white. This obviously means women asking about income are gold diggers, and are best avoided.

They also know that Western men are more truthful (generally speaking), and they’re easier to communicate with than local guys.

It comes down to this: You’re a better match for them than local guys, which is almost the exact reason you’re on this page reading about foreign/mail order brides.

They want to find the best possible men, ones with husband material, and they’re simply not finding that at home.

Ghana Dating – These Girls Speak Your Language

Ghana dating is generally pretty straightforward.  About half of Ghana’s girls live in cities and so you do not have to rigorously follow some of the more traditional Ghana dating mores.

Two more things that make Ghana dating easy for American men is that English is the official language of Ghana and the dollar is still quite strong against local currency, so it is a very cheap place for Americans to vacation.

You can forget about easy one night stands, or getting a woman here into bed on the third or fourth date. You’ll be lucky to be able to do that on the tenth date, depending on the girl.

Ghanaian culture is all about family, so when you date a woman here you are effectively dating her entire family.

What we said earlier about showing respect towards elders in your own family comes into play here – women here won’t put up with a guy that’s rude to her friends or her loved ones.

You’ll notice that women here dress to impress, but that doesn’t mean they’re easy. If you want to bypass all the “maybes”, then look at college students.

They’re great prospects for international and online dating, plus they’re educated, young, pretty, and want to see more of the world.

There are lots of single mothers in Ghana, but this presents you with an untapped dating market – Ghanaian men generally won’t look twice at a single mother, for no other reason than the kid isn’t his.

Avoid any woman who’s never had a job of any kind, although this is true of women in any country. Women here who’d never worked a day in their lives are looking for a sugar daddy.

If that suits you, then go for it, but go into the relationship with both eyes opened and a firm grip on your wallet.

For guys looking for a hot African woman Ghana is a great place to look.  However, you may notice we don’t have many profiles in this section, and that’s because there are not many African dating websites that meet the rigorous standards we have here at ILS, but check out African Beauties.

They have a lot of beautiful ladies and from everything we at ILS have seen they make a serious effort to address issues such as scamming.

You might also want to check out Afro Introductions which has far more ladies than any African site we’ve seen.  However, they are a big corporate introduction site, so be careful about scammers over there.

Patrick Ebo Williams

Patrick is gay. But after short conversations he can claim to bestarving, have no money and is an ‘orphan’. He claims to be looking for work to pay for his school. Yet this cannot be true as he is on the internet 24 hours a to be quite abusive if money was refused but seems to have learnt to control his temper recently.

A few foreigners (often prompted by Patrick) have written to say he’s a nice guy, that they have met him and he was helpful. This may all be true. But we know he is always begging online and have many reliable reports of this including from this admin.

Also see this facebook discussion for evidence on how he misleads.

David Tumawu

He is currently why-me on gayromeo and am_honest_david at gaylog but he likes to change his profile on a regular basis. Has now progressed to 419 scams.

Lives at Praku apparently with his grandfather. Just wants money.

Bruce Fening

He seems to be off the gay dating sites at the moment although you can find him on facebook where he calls himself Bruce Fening Kruger. Interesting that Petit (found elsewhere on this website) has also given himself this last name.

He used to be boy_bruce2005 on gayromeo and boy_bruce2005 on gaydar but changed his profile all the time. Currently fening13 on manhunt (Aug/2013). He tells stories that he is orphan since his parents died in a car accident. He then requests money and if you don’t send it becomes very angry.

2. Availability of smartphones

Chinese smartphone manufacturers have flooded the Ghanaianmarket with extremely cheap smartphones to the point that almost everyone inGhana owns one. These smartphones can access all the dating sites in the worldwhich has made it easier for scammers to do their business.

1. Dating site scams

This is the most common type of scam in Ghana. The scammer uses a dating site to find potential victims and then uses a fake profile to carry out the scams. The most common websites used include , , , , , and Facebook. These types of scams can go on for months or even years as the scammer tries to gain the trust of their target.

2. Military scams

These are among the most common scam formats with the highest success rate. The scammer pretends to be a member of the military of the target victim’s country serving in Ghana. For instance, if the scammer’s target is an American, the scammer will pretend to be a US military man serving in Ghana or another nearby African country. The scammers search for pictures of real US military agents to accompany their dating site profiles.

6. They are against a live video chat

One of the best ways to know if someone you met online iswho they say they are is through a live chat. Through a live chat, you canactually see the person’s face and compare it to the pictures they’ve used onthe dating website profile. If you are dealing with a scammer, they will alwayshave excuses on why the live chat is not possible. Some will claim that theylack proper equipment for live video chats, others will always have connectionissues, while you may not be able to see others clearly.

Meet a man in Accra

Gayromeo on, my nickname is: Pseudo magnifique Pseudo christianleblan Pseudo franckysexy Pseudo cosmopolitain5 Pseudo kevinecfa. Ferrova -Pseudo: Pseudo christianleblan!!! This is a great web site and a wealth of information. But I wonder where to go in Accra if visiting from outside Ghana, to meet real Ghana gay Guys, not just for sex but perhaps to meet genuine people and even maybe a partner for life.

Where in Accra does this exist? I wish fakers2go good wishes but we should work together to be positive about good things for Ghana like real clubs, meeting places, groups not just focusing on fakers. More people would be happy to help I think. Hi Rajiv, Thanks for your comments which are constructive. There used to be a bar but it no longer exists. There are a few groups but they do not welcome foreigners who may just come to prey on the boys.

Most of us meet people through friends or parties. There are places people interested in men hang out but they are mixed and everything is underground. There are lots of good people but you are unlikely to meet them on a holiday. If you have not been to Africa before you need to exercise caution. You can meet lots of Ghanaians in London where you have legal protection and where jobs mean less financal goals.

Instead come to enjoy the country. The scammers have learnt to tell foreigners what they want to hear. You have no way of knowing whether they are for real or not unless you are here on a long term basis and can get to know them over a few years. Thats really make this website great. I am a Chinese gay, I know most of you dont like chinese, But I am different. Please trust me. Even for reaching this site, I pass through so many proxcy.

But not for me. But this website really make me scared, I have one black man. Even I want to run. I dont know the result, but I will try my best. For further, I really want to be friend of you guys, cos I know you are good guys, hope you can help me.

For my staying here for long time in the future, also I can provide information what I get to help this. Hi Mhitle. Have a great time in Ghana but stay wise. You will make lots of friends, people will throw themselves at you, but most will be opportunists. The real friends you will make will come later when you have been here for a while. How well do you know this friend from Central Africa? Be very careful about setting up a business with him. Most foreigners loose huge amounts of money when they first start business in Ghana and letter become wise.

If this man runs away where will you find him? People seem trust worthy but get to know how things work before you start anything.
